The Government Shutdown Is In Day 17 And Is Now The Third-Longest On Record

2 months ago1.9K views

President Donald Trump and Democratic leaders have yet to come to an agreement to reopen the government despite talks between the two sides over the weekend. As the shutdown enters day 17, there appears to be no end in sight.

This is 21st time since the modern budget process began with the Budget Act of 1974 that the federal government has entered a shutdown or had a funding lapse.

On average, the 20 previous shutdowns lasted eight days, though they have been longer in recent decades.
